In that case, I'm sorry you have to go through that. Unfortunately, in my experience, those are hard minds to change. I had no choice but to let him go and try to figure it out. I was so heart broken I didn't even date for seven months, but that is when I met my husband. The guy showed up about two months into my new relationship and almost convinced me to break up with him, but I didn't because I knew it was his mistake for letting me go in the first place. Getting over something like that would be hard on a relationship anyway, if you guys ever got back together.

If you havn't already, I would tell him you want to be there for him, no matter what he's going through. But if he insists on ending it, just let him know that you wont let the breakup consume your life, and you will have to move on.

Like letagrlshow said, if it's truly love, there's a way to make it work. If he doesn't think so, maybe he's not worth it.

Just to clear something up before I jump to my answer- Long distance relationships can work if you want them to/are mature enough to do it. At 16 of course a long distance relationship (and often a committed relationship of any sort) isnt going to work.
I met my partner overseas, came back to Aus, lived 16 hours appart for 9 months (visiting every 2-3 months) and now are living together. Proofs in the pudding eh

Anyway, back to the point. I think if your relationship cant survive whatever outside pressures life throws at you, its not going to work, and you'll end up parting at some point in the relationship anyway. Whats going to happen if the relationship continues and a few years down the track things get more serious? There are careers, family, etc thrown at you, all potentially putting strain on your relationship

It's just my opinion but most people I know have never had a good working long dist relationship. Not unless you are married to this person and he was sent overseas for the military. but even then it doesnt always work, i have alot of soldier friends and alot of them got divorced because their wives/husbands either cheated on them or just couldnt take being that far away. If you love a guy enough to keep him even at a long dist relationship then all the better for you! (Not saying that sarcastically or anything, Im glad when people can make any kind of relationship work these days). Im just saying that for very few people does it ever work. Sorry if this is a little off your topic
